How To Measure Custom Fit Pelmet Guide

At Blinds Downunder we have put together a written guide on how to measure different types of pelmets, based on pelmet selection. As most of our aluminium pelmets are integrated with with our roller blinds. You can apply the same width measurement as a roller blind for these systems (Sunboss 75mm Fascia, Sunboss 100mm Fascia, Sunboss 160mm Fascia). Our configurators offer to add the single 75mm Sunboss Fascia on our Quick Order Roller Blind Selection Page and 75mm Sunboss Fascia and 100mm Sunboss Fascia on the Single Roller Blind Selection PageOur Double Roller Blind Selection Page offers to add the single 160mm Sunboss. Selections will be found on bottom of these pages, once blind selections have been chosen.

You can also head straight to our Pelmet Selection Page to order new Pelmets or Retrofit Pelmets.

Measuring Instructions

 Items you will need

1)Steel Tape measure (All measurements to be documented in millimetres)

2)Print Measurement form or populate Measurement form online

3)Pen and Paper  

 

Fill In our custom Roller Blind form,while you measure your windows.Then input on our online pricing configurator.
 

 Important notes;

1) Always document the room your pelmet will be installed. You may wish to sketch a plan of blind locations as reference. Hang onto both your Measurement form/sketch and file for future reference.

2)Always measure every window individually, check measurements in a minimum of three different locations. Windows can sometimes be out of square. The top width measurement is what matters the most.Refer to measurement video and specific measurement documents: Face Fit, Face Fit No Architraves.

3)Always measure the width measurement and then the drop measurement in that order. Make sure you write measurements to the exact millimetre.

5) Still look for any obstructions ie; door/window hardware, which may interfere with your blind’s functionality.

6) Never take measurement directly from your house plans or window schedules as this will most likely not be accurate.

7) Always Triple check your measurements and blind details you have documented.

8) It is important to input your measurements to the exact size. It is always recommended if you are finding it difficult to differentiate between one millimetre, you write down the greater measurement. If you are measuring with someone else, make sure everyone is reading the tape measure the same way, before you start measuring the entire house lot of blinds. Make sure to read all measurements out aloud and confirm measurements by repeating your assistant’s measurement, especially before writing the finalised measurements on your measurement form.

10) Once you have completed the Measurement form, transfer these details to our product selections Single Roller, Double Roller, Pelmets and Protection Roller at the top of the page. Triple check the information you are entering relates to your Measurement form, as you go. Always check your information is correct prior to proceeding with purchase that is in your cart.
